The Chevrolet brand is one of the most well-known names in the world. Do you know where the name comes from? Chevrolet was named after Louis Chevrolet, who was an early race car driver born in Switzerland in 1878. He moved to New York City in 1902 where he raced for Fiat.
Eventually, William Durant, the founder of General Motors,
noticed Chevrolet’s racing skills. Durant hired Chevrolet to be his chauffeur
and convinced him to create a car company with him. Durant and Chevrolet
produced their first car, the Chevrolet Classic 6 in 1910.

company built high-performing race cars that competed all across the country
and even won the Indianapolis 500 twice. The Frontenac Motor Corp. did not last

color of its own. Sunlit Bronze Metallic is a sandy clay color that gives a
very southwestern style to the sleek city-dweller.

If you’re looking to head out camping with your Chevrolet Silverado, though, why not make things a bit easier? Here are some Chevy Silverado camping accessories you should consider when you head out this weekend.

why it’s always important to be prepared. Stay comfortable throughout the night

with your Silverado in mind, and attach to the bed of your trunk for easy
put-up and take-down. You can also opt for a tonneau cover to ensure your cargo
stays dry when the skies open up.
Your Silverado was made to tow and haul, so why not take
advantage? Whether you’re bringing your boat along with you to push out in
Puget Sound or plan on bringing a camper with you to your campsite, purchase a
trailer hitch package to make it possible.
If you’re heading off-road, then you’re likely ready to get
down and dirty – but why not try and preserve your Silverado’s paint while
you’re at it? Invest in some splash guards to protect your Silverado’s paint
job from mud and debris, and consider investing in an A-pillar light for extra
